Thank you for visiting my website.

My areas of specialty are industrial organization and applied econometrics. My current research focuses on the airline, pharmaceutical, and telecommunications industries.

I grew up near Cleveland, Ohio (home of the 2016 World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers).  I graduated from Ohio University in 2003 with a B.A. in economics, and earned my Ph.D. in 2009 from the University of Virginia.  I spent the first 6 years of my career at the University of Georgia before moving to UNC-Chapel Hill in 2015.
